Corirose Anjali (Wildheart Dancingfree)
As a healing practitioner and ceremonialist I've been blessed to work with individuals and groups for over 30 years. I've been playing guitar and piano and writing songs since I was a little girl. I enjoy connecting with others spiritually through song circles, experiential learning and fun community building activities. I love co-created ritual and have a background of leading Sweat Lodge and Vision Quest Ceremony.
After years of studying and practicing Compassionate Communication, I’m helping develop The Grove Community’s Communication Arts as a trainer and facilitator. This collaborative work feeds my soul’s dedication: Empowering all of us to discover greater connection with ourselves, and what matters most in our lives.
I believe healthy community is the foundation of what heals all. I serve in the world as a mentor, teacher, healing practitioner, music-maker and story-teller. Co-creating experiences of transformational healing, soul-level growth, and consciousness evolution is among my most cherished work. I have a passion for building group intimacy through voice, breath, sound, and movement, weaving harmonies with others, inviting every voice "in" because that is what makes the tapestry beautiful and complete. I carry a deep understanding of the power of people uniting to re-story a life-fostering essential reality for these changing times. This is what I sing about, imagine, live for and pray for.
